SHANGHAI, China -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc has recalled donkey meat sold at some outlets in China after tests showed the product contained the DNA of other animals.
Wal-Mart will reimburse customers who bought the tainted "Five Spice" donkey meat and is helping authorities in eastern Shandong province investigate its Chinese supplier, the firm said late on Wednesday on China's Twitter-like Weibo. The Shandong Food and Drug Administration earlier said the product contained fox meat.
Donkey meat is a popular snack in some areas of China, although it only accounts for a tiny fraction of overall meat consumption. In 2011 China slaughtered 2.4 million donkeys, according to country's livestock industry yearbook.
Wal-Mart, French grocer Carrefour SA, McDonald's Corp and KFC-parent Yum Brands Inc among others, have come under fire before in China over food safety issues, a sensitive topic in a country riddled with scares from a fatal tainted milk scandal to recycled "gutter oil" used for cooking.
